Our game is played best with our families, teammates, coaches, friends, opponents, officials, organizers, sponsors and helpers. It has been so for me for more than 40 years. I am grateful to you all for your role in my volleyball experiences. I wish you all the best opportunities as you each pursue your own aspirations and, when our paths intersect, may we celebrate life enriched by our collective experiences.
